Taylor Swift鈥檚 gold snake microphone may have stolen the show during her performance of 鈥溾eady for It?鈥 on Saturday Night Live last night, but the episode was already a momentous one before the singer ever stepped foot onstage, thanks to its history-making host.

Breakout Girls Trip star Tiffany Haddish did the show honors, becoming the first-ever聽female comedian of color to hold the prestigious title of host in its 43-season run.

She kicked things off on a high note with a monologue that got plenty of laughs, joking about her own net worth on Google ($2 million) and asking, 鈥淲hat do I need to do to get this money? Fake my own death?鈥

The 37-year-old, who looked stunning in a white Alexander McQueen dress (which she admitted to previously wearing on a red carpet), kept the jokes coming as she touched on her own life 鈥 鈥淚 grew up in foster care, and I want to thank you to anyone who paid taxes between 1990 and 1999鈥 鈥 before delving into politics, including President Trump鈥檚 hair, and the current wave of sexual harassment allegations in Hollywood. 鈥淚f you got your thing-thing out and she got all her clothes on YOU鈥橰E WRONG,鈥 she quipped.

Then came the sketches. The LA-native took on the role of Boo Boo Jeffries (a fighter in a Mortal Kombat-esque game), appeared on a fake talk show called Get Woke With Tamika, and starred in a quirky skit dubbed The Last Black Unicorn. The funniest of all, however, may have been her near-perfect impersonation of Cardi B auditioning for the upcoming remake of聽The Lion King. Cardi, er, Haddish, was joined by Leslie Jones as Oprah, Cecily Strong as Lin-Manuel Miranda, and Alex Moffat as Kit Harington for an LOL-worthy performance that had us in stitches.

The funny gal ended the evening with an emotional sign-off in which she thanked musical guest Taylor Swift, her co-stars, her grandma, her 鈥渟ocial worker that got me into comedy,鈥 and more.

Congratulations, Tiffany 鈥 you slayed it!
